Heathen - someone who doesnít belong to a widely held religion (especially one of the three major world religions) or one who follows a polytheistic religion. In America beer has its own religion, and millions worship at the altar of three major beers ó Bud, Miller and Coors. As a beer heathen I donít dislike beer. I just choose to follow the lesser known breweries and brew pubs. If you love beer you know these places well, but to the millions of Bud devotees, we are the heathens.
